I absolutely love fiction of the 50's, 60's and 70's...fiction of all types. I read every single book I find. I even read the killer 60's and 70's adult XXX books that my father collected like so many marbles and probably still has. I hope that doesn't shock some of you and run you off. I promise I won't post anything truly hard core without warning you first! Anyhow, I found these great books today at the Bishops Attic; one of my favorite thrift stores here in Anchorage. I've found most of my truly kick @$$ vintage items there. That and the new salvation army store in Mountain View. You've kind of gotta know when to hit them. It's just like gambling I think...you can actually feel it when there's good stuff coming!
I dig the artwork on these. Especially the first two and the C.S. Lewis "That Hideous Strength". I'm determined to do something with some of these covers I've collected so that I can enjoy looking at them all the time, I just haven't figured out exactly what yet. I've been working my butt off on a particular decoupage craft this past week because I've been putting it off half finished for quite awhile. I didn't realize how much time it was actually going to take. It is looking quite cool though and as soon as it's finished I promise I will share it here with all of you.
Ok, this book just drew me to it because of the Title. I was right in assuming that there is a series surrounding this particular Rabbi and each title is just as cool as this one. It goes like this: Monday the Rabbi Took Off; and of course this one, Tuesday the Rabbi Saw Red, Wednesday the Rabbi got Wet, Thursday the Rabbi Walked Out, Friday the Rabbi Slept Late, Saturday the Rabbi Went Hungry and Sunday the Rabbi Stayed Home. There are more in the "Rabbi" series but I won't go nuts here. This one here was written in 1973 and I'm looking forward to reading it.
This one looks cool.
This one is GREAT! for some true vintage wedding etiquette. It was published in 63. I found some notes written on pages from a 64 desk calendar hidden between several pages. I love finding those. I find lots of personal notes in vintage books. I especially love finding them in cookbooks. I find old grocery lists, cash register tapes, recipes, etc. in vintage cookbooks. It's like finding the toy in a cracker jack box but for vintage junkies.
I thought of Holly Hall over at Sweetheartville when I saw this. It's so perfectly country vintage.
